coincidence. joining us is president of florida league of women voters and jim greer, the former chairman of the republican party who's been very critical of what went on behind the scenes. first, thank you both for being here. >> glad to be here. >> jim, what can you tell our viewers with emmett "bucky" greer? >> he and his partner worked for me for a period of time when i was chairman. they are good at what they do. when you're looking for a lawyer that can write legislation and change the election laws, stand up potentially to a constitutional challenge, you reach out to people like bucky and his partner richard coats and they draft the law. they a they advise how it can get done and it's about keeping people from election day to win the republican election. >> keeping pop freople from get to election day? >> that's right. primarily down here in florida, reducing early voting days, put all of these obstacles in the way of democrats, minority voters from getting to the polls because down here in florida it's not just about the presidential election, it's about keeping power in the legis
the showtime package. let's go to "politico," shall we? >> yeah, hurry. >> jim, your favorite "star wars" film, please. >> it's definitely "empire strikes back." i'm chind ofkind of a chewie gu. >> who isn't? >> new jersey governor chris christie, new york city mayor michael bloomberg have come out as sort of the faces of this storm. is there a political impact here? it's been interesting, jim, to watch the relationship between chris christie and president obama and the relationship between mayer bloomberg and president obama. explain that a little bit. >> i find that christie to be most fascinating because he's going out there on all the talk shows really praising barack obama and how cooperative he's been with governor christie in new jersey. if you look at it from christ christie's perspective, that's what he should be doing. he's a governor who's going to need as much assistance and help in the aftermath of the storm as anyone. befriending the president, praising the president, bringing the president into his state and traveling the state, that's what you do when you're a governor. >> by t
know what dixicrast did to intimidate. they were known as jim crow. what we have going on in the 21st century in 2012 is jim crow's cousin, james crow esquire. this is what people need to know. they have planned this for months. this has been going on for months under the radar. it's now out in the open. two, i suspect that this is something that they've been doing in multiple states and scott and others will probably keep finding out and we're lucky to find it out just a few days before the election. >> absolutely. >> and finally, reverend sharpton, i will say this again. this is where you tell people, get out of my face because, remember, none of these people have legal authority. they have no legal authority to stop you from voting and that's what you've got to remember. just simply tell them to get the you know what out of my face and go in there and vote. >> now, we started seeing this in wisconsin, now iowa and elsewhere. scott, some liberal bloggers have suggested that project orca could lead in this sophisticated apparatus that we're talking about to voter suppression. give yo
the pictures as they occur. we'll talk to the weather channel's jim cantore down in lower manhattan where there's a lot going on with the high storm surge expected to rise and a crane has toppled in midtown manhattan because of all this wind. this is "hardball," live coverage of hurricane sandy. back with more after this. >>> welcome back to "hardball." hurricane sandy will make landfall in a few hours and while millions along the east coast have yet to see the wors , this storm has to offer, residents are already getting a taste of sandy's wrath, if you will. 375,000 residents were ordered to evacuate from new york city in advance of hurricane sandy's rough winds and high water. the weather channel's jim cantore is with us tonight from battery park, that's in lower manhattan at the very bottom. jim, i see the rough seas out there. this doesn't make any sense to me historically. i grew up in a country, philadelphia, where you had a certain number of snows every winter which were normal. you had your hurricane season around august/september and it was down south. now what is this? we're not gett
white men. let me play what senator jim webb said to chuck todd on this issue. take a listen. >> how in the name of the lord can the democratic party, the party of andrew jackson, only be getting 28 periods of time of the white male working class vote? from my perspective it's because of the interest group politics in the democratic party, that particular cultural group doesn't believe the democrats like that. >> are some white voters turned off by the democratic party? if so, where does the popular clinton factor come in? >> the president is there and will be in ohio for a reason. the president can bring into focus the idea that with the right economic policies and if you stick with it, as we did in 1995 and 1996, prosperity comes along. the real key numbers in ohio are look at the unemployment rate when the president came into office and where it is now. it's down i think nearly 50%. the auto bailout, some of the president's investments in manufacturing have really paid off in ohio, frankly, at the end of the day we can talk back and forth about different demographics. the presiden
.s. economic senator for the economist, jim, let me start with you been what's your take away from this report? what does it tell us about the status of the jobs market? >> well, it tells us that the jobs market is getting better. it's not getting better nearly fast enough for the 12 million merps who want to find work but can't. but the pace of the recovery appears to be picking up. this is good news. we're seeing increases in the creation rate for private sector employment. we're seeing some sectors, like housing and construction starting to come back that are adding more jobs. these are very good things and signs that, while we're not anywhere close to where we need to be yet, maybe the economy really is starting to get back into that more green zone than a red zone. >> and, jim, one gray cloud in the economic report, and it is frankly what the republicans are poundsing, is what the republicans call the real unemployment rate, 14.6 of% and it includes, as you know, people who have settled for part-time work, who have stopped looking for work altogether. what can you tell us about that rate

jim webb and mark warner win in virginia back when we thought virginia was a red state. you are trying to figure that out in and out. what is virginia? >> virginia is still pretty much a red state. a lot of people say purple. but if you look at the makeup of the general assembly and what's going on in local -- >> still easier to be a local republican, you think, and get elected than being a local democrat? >> well, of course, it depends on the state. i mean, if you're in northern virginia, it's hard to find a republican. if you get down where i live, it's hard to find a democrat with a search warrant. it's the tale of two states, as you're aware, chuck. >> but it's also culture. and i want to say something, a man you're close friends with, jim webb, in an exit interview i did with him, we talked about the specific issue that he thinks president obama is having. and if he weren't having it, this election would be over. here's what he told me. >> i will tell you, i said that directly to the president about two weeks ago. you know, how in the name of the lord can the democratic party, the
democratic businessman and hotel owner jim graves. he is convinced bachmann's failed presidential run is helping him. >> i definitely think people feel left out here. she hasn't been in the district or on the floor in congress. she just hasn't been representing the people. she hasn't been a voice for the people. >> reporter: a run that didn't sit well with some of her constituents. >> i think it hurt her because she really wasn't doing anything for the voters in her district. >> i think that was a waste of time and she wasn't maybe doing her job and i was paying for that? sure. i do. >> reporter: bachmann admits there's been fallout but remains confident. do you think your presidential run hurt you or helped you in the district? >> oh, i think that it -- i think there's both. i think there's a lot of advantages that came from it and i'm now applying that to the run this time and all of the polling numbers look very positive and people appreciate the work that i've done for the district so we're all happy. >> reporter: bachmann's fame makes her a prolific fundraiser and she is spending
and the presidential race, editor of the daily beast and joy an read. jim, i haven't talked to you in a while. but i made a mistake, it was jane bern who benefited from the machine out there. tell us about what your experience is as a general reporter to what weather can do to elections. >> chris, i think as we said before it takes snow and i'm a native new yorker, and very weak response to a huge snowstorm. he lost in chicago in 1979. in the early '90s, a couple of washington bad storms, marion barry's stock plummeted. >> give me the reason for that. why do people have a big scorecard in their heads and hearts about weather and how politicians handle it? >> because if they are deemed to be responsible and affected and efficient, they are allotted. remember, herbert hoover won in 1928 because of what was deemed to be good performance as commerce secretary overseeing the response of the mississippi river flooding. the next year, huey long wins governor ship of mississippi. and in 1994 benefitting from a huge earthquake but the opposite is what we have seen in new york city, chicago, and washington wh
reproduction. it's about the economy, that it's about race. when we think about jim crow laws, it was all about not allowing people of two different races to reproduce. i hadn't quite put it all together until i heard you say that, so i don't want other folks to misses that. and yet surprisingly the gender gap is less extreme than i might think it would be given these circumstances. is it -- when i look at the numbers, it says to me, yes, there's a gender gap, but it's still being driven primarily by women of color and by young women. so what's going on not just with the extremes of the republican party, but with women who hear this and i'm like, yeah, i'm town with them. what is that some. >> the conventional wisdom is when the republicans say these extreme things, those women will be turned off and vote if democrats. i don't think that's necessarily the case. it's not that they don't reject what is being said, because they do. but at the same time sometimes if you're independent and you are dead on the in middle, it's because you're turned off by booth pa both party. so democrats have to reme
president next tuesday. >> i would add, right before we came on, i got a memo from jim messina the obama campaign manager essentially pushing back on the idea that pennsylvania is now a swing state. so to mark's point, the president himself might not be engaged and rightly so but his campaign is still active. this is not 16 days it's six days. >> the romney campaign put out a memo about pennsylvania. >> absolutely. >> let me ask mark akbout pennsylvania. i was there last week. the republicans saying we can do this, we can win pennsylvania, democrats saying it's not even in play. what is your assessment? >> well the obama campaign needs pennsylvania to win. the romney campaign doesn't. i don't think they would be wasting the money in pennsylvania on the republican side if they thought they had no chance or at least a chance to distract the democrats. if the romney campaign went on the air in new york, i don't think the obama campaign would feel compelled to match the dollars there. if the obama campaign went on the air in texas tv i don't think the romney campaign would feel the need to g
rove super pac putting $2 million into pennsylvania. i was on a conference call with jim mess siena and jafds axelrod saying that's a bluff, that pennsylvania is not a problem. if people are worried about coming back from power outages which could last a week or more as they did after irene, and if people cannot get to the polls? this whole thing could be thrown up in the air. >> what's hard for me if you're trying to analyze this, well the president gets to look more presidential and that's good and mitt romney is sidelined or the president's voters won't be able to turn out. what's difficult this is a variable into an evasion that really has not changed basically two plus two has equalled four almost this entire campaign. it's been close. mitt romney has been behind slightly but it's been close. throw this other variable into this problem that we thought we had pretty much close to knowing the answer, close one or way the other, who knows. i think we focus on today, tomorrow but wednesday, thursday, friday, saturday into the weekend, can they resume campaigning? even if they do, t
, some subway stations from maine under water. the weather channel's jim canner to joins me from outside one of those submerged subway stage. how is it looking in new york? >> yeah, andrea. this is awful. this is the south berry subway station here. you get off the staten island ferry and some would walk through here and take the train uptown or as far as the bronx if you so choose. the problem is there's 30 to 40 feet of what we call brackish water had in there, which is kind of a mixture of fresh water and seawater and diesel fuel. i was down there earlier, we took some picks down there, and i'm telling you, after about 30 or 40 seconds your eyes are burning, your nostrils are burning. you can't breathe down there. it is awful. so the army corps of engineers is here and hoping to pump this out and it's going to take a couple days. i mean 30 to 40 feet deep and it goes all the way up to the next station. all right. this is the worst station that we understand here in lower part of manhattan in terms of water infiltration. we talked about the tunnels that are still infiltrated, midtown,
spoke with the former head of the republican party of florida, a guy named jim greer who is in his own trouble over charges about some illegal money thing that he was doing, but when he was running the party he told me that republican consultants came to him and said, we want to craft a bill that would get rid of early voting if we could, or severely cut it, because in the words of these consultants, according to jim greer, all it does is bring every african-american out from under a rock, that's a quote, and get them to vote for democrats. they don't vote for us, it doesn't help us. so the republican legislature which in 2010 became more tea party, more conservative, there's no margin in it for them to increase access to in-person early voting. what they did is passed a law that didn't touch absentee voting, which republicans tend to dominate in, but severely limited the early vote. just to give you some numbers, you're talking about there were 96 hours, there are 96 hours this year total to vote. there were 120 hours in 2008. and already in the state, 3.46 million people have voted.

. jim cantore, he said this was the coldest hurricane he's ever covered in his entire life. it doesn't make sense. such a strange event. the storm sizewise was like the second biggest storm we've ever kept track of going up the coast including famous blizzards and hurricane. this storm was immense. the stronger the winds, the larger the wind field and the more water these storms throw on shore and that's why we have such problems. we haven't seen the worst of the pictures yet from the jersey shore. when chris christie said i think we'll be shocked when we see them tomorrow. there may be cases where the ocean met the bay. in other words, it just eroded right through the barrier islands and i think we're going to see some of that tomorrow. >> what will happen to terms tomorrow and this those snow areas. what can they expect from temperature tools? >> excellent point. usually you lose power and it's usually summertime and you don't worry. we'll have temperatures in the 50s and 60s during the day and at night, 40s and 50s. if you're trying to keep your family warm and you have no power,
to wait until it trips a fuse inside the transformer itself before, sorry, jim, before, you know, they can do anything so they're just monitoring it. those people are so thankful to have gotten out okay. the house itself is not on fire but those embers creeping ever closer to homes nearby and a lot of people had cars on the street. one person told me a car is underneath a tree but they did get people to get their cars off the street so, "a," they could get the fire trucks in and "b," it wouldn't spread to their vehicles sea an active scene in teaneck. >> that was pat battle in teaneck, new jersey. i'm being handed new information about power outages, the latest number, 7.1 million people and just to give you an idea of the extent of it, throw out a few more numbers, con edison, which covers new york city and west chester county, 634,000 plus and on long island, we were telling you, for example, on fire island there are home as long the waterfront, at least seven of them, we believe, that went into the water. 844,000, almost 845,000 customers without power on long island, connecticut light
be the odd surprise. >> jim? >> keep an eye on hispanic voters. >> that's what i agree. most pessimistic, romney side. what do you think? >> definitely nevada. definitely iowa. i guess wisconsin. wisconsin, ohio. they need one of those two. >> well, no. one of the other ones. either iowa or ohio or wisconsin. >> liz, what do you sense is the closest state? what's going to be the closest state? >> it's going to be my state. >> you think it's going to be the closest state? >> i think at the end, that's what we'll see, correct. >> i think it's going to be nevada. >> you think that's going to be the closest? >> yeah, i think that's going to be a razor-thin margin, presumably for romney. >> i'm going to stick with virginia. i've been going back and forth between virginia and colorado. i think it will be one of those two. that's it for this edition of "t"the daily rundown."" before we go, i have to do my shameless plugs. >> my friends and neighbors in new jersey, hang in there. everybody's thinking about you today. >> we all are. that is ditto for everybody. any other shameless plug? >> americ
events in order to monitor recovery efforts. in an e-mail to supporters, campaign manager jim messina asked for donations not for the campaign, but for the american red cross stating "soon enough we'll get back to work on the most campaign of our lifetime. but the most important thing at this moment is you and your loved ones are safe and the rest of us do what we can to speed the recovery." the romney campaign, on the other hand, found themselves struggling to find the right tone. in an effort to avoid seeming insensitive to the millions of americans affected by the storm, the romney camp canceled appearances on monday and tuesday but rebranded others as storm relief events. senator john mccain spoke on behalf of governor romney at an event in ohio today and apparently missed the memo about putting politics aside. mccain slammed the president's handling of the the attack on the american consulate in libya. >> this president is either engaged in a massive cover-up deceiving the american people, or he is so grossly incompetent that he's not qualified to be commander in chief of our arm
to defeat michele bachmann in supporting a guy named jim graves who is a self-made guy. he's a very successful businessman. if the republicans wanted to get somebody to run, this is the kind of guy that they'd go after. >> yeah. >> what kind of effect can bill clinton have on a high profile tea partier who has been critical of the president from day one. >> think about what you just said. this candidate on the democratic side is a perfect democrat and he's somebody that michele bachmann's softer supporters, whether it's women who are concerned with her position on women's issues, or republicans, there are a lot of republicans who look fondly at bill clinton, if clinton is validating this guy he might be my kind of democrat. >> thanks for joining us. >>> coming up, katy perry helps president obama get out the vote in wisconsin. state senator lena taylor. stay tuned. this is "the ed show" live from democracy plaza in new york city.

. break the law? since when is voting breaking the law? decades ago we faced jim crow and the polls. today it's fewer hours and longer lines. but the goal is the same. voter suppression. joining me now is former florida governor charlie crist. he's now an independent. tonight he's introducing former president clinton at an obama rally. governor, thanks so much for your time tonight. >> reverend, it's great to be with you, reverend al. thank you. >> now, let me ask you directly. wouldn't extending voting hours be the right thing for governor scott to do here? you did it in 2008 as the governor of florida and you are republican. what would be wrong with scott doing that today? >> there would be nothing wrong with it, reverend. it would be the right thing to do. it's a precious, cherished right and all of us want to have an opportunity to exercise. yesterday i was in miami guard dense in north dade county and the wait was 2 1/2 to three hours. it's unconscienceable to let that go on. the people of florida deserve better and they deserve a right to vote. >> i have been down in florida with the
. michele bachmann is locked in a tight race against democratic challenger jim graves. the right wing's war on women came up in the last debate. bachmann was asked about richard mourdock's remarks. bachmann wouldn't tell voters where she stood, dodging questions about abortion, access for rape victims. >> you heard what richard mourdock said and you know that has been controversial. god intended this to happen if a fetus results a consequence of that rape. i want to know if you agree with that. >> what i agree with is i'm 100% pro-life and i agree with the position of the catholic church on this issue. >> let's bring in kelly goth, political correspondent for theroot.com and democratic strategist chris kafinis. the war on women. these remarks by mourdock continued to erode away. how big of an impact is this going to have on these races? >> huge. it already is, right? and i think the way i look at this, ed, is the other perspective of the gop was that this election cycle was essentially about three issues. the economy, the economy, the economy. and that is partially true, right? but you can
refrain there. >> can you have it, actually. i don't think i'll be doing that again. >> mike allen and jim from politico reported chris christie was the number one choice for mitt romney at one point, he went to london for the olympics, came back and ended up picking paul ryan. there's a lot of bad blood right now between the romney campaign and the chris christie folks and we're seeing that spill out here right in the last couple of days. >> you know, let me inject. i've not plugged into the romney campaign like "the politico" guys. i know about christie. i'm skeptical of the idea that there ever was a moment when romney was going to pick christie for this. it seems cute that it's coming out at this moment. jonathan i want to ask you about demographics heading in to this tuesday. seems like there's basically a test that we're going to find out. can obama win re-election with a historically small share of the white vote which basically means will the nonwhite vote share of the electorate rise to new levels that will allow him to survive, like latino support and black support. obama people
has eased restrictions on foreign flag oil tankers. jim cantore has more for us on this problem. >> hey, tamron. this is what i would call an orderly gas line, even though it's packed, it's orderly he. people are lined up to each pump, and they filled the tanks with tangers that came in here. this is a nice supply of gas here at the vince lombardi truck stop. back towards the west, you can see here this gentleman, this police officer is actually directing traffic coming in from the exit into which line they should get in. as we show you where that line is, it travels all the way back up around to the turnpike. last night we understand this line was all the way out into the turnpike, which creates a dangerous situation there. so this is pretty good. you have about an hour and a half wait to the end of the line so you're able to get gas. there's no limits here on how much to get. they ask everybody to be respectful of everybody else. if you have five five-gallon tanks strapped to your roof, that won't make a lot of people happy. you have 50% of all the gas stations out there that
what it meant to you, but my brother jim filled me in today. the boardwalk is gone down there where grace kelly lived, all that historic stuff down there. just gone. all the way down to the south everything's flooded. it's amazing how much damage. but luckily, as i think was wonderful the way your former colleague, actually governor christie said today, not much loss of life. this is all about stuff that can be replaced. >> right, and he's right. it can be replaced if we understand that government has a role in our lives. government is important in our lives, and government has to be the key factor in helping that effort, that recovery effort. >> well, let's talk about that effort. let me go right now to david corn who is joining me. it seems to me that fema, working on that with the carter administration, there was a judgment made way back when in the '70s that government needs to be united. one focus by one man or woman, this guy, fugate's got to be good. you need like a baseball team, you need a manager, somebody to call the shots. >> and we see with more extreme weather happenin
it trips a fuse inside the transformer, itself, before, sorry, jim, before, you know, they can do anything, so right now they're just monitoring it. those people are so thankful to have gotten out okay. the house, itself, is not on fire. again, but those embers creeps ever closer to properties nearby. tea neck firefighters keeping a good look at this and also i want to show you a lot of people had cars on the street. one gentleman told me his car is underneath a tree there. they did get people -- people get their cars off the street so, "a" they could get the fire trucks in there and "b" the fire wouldn't spread to any of their vehicles. just a very active scene in tea neck tonight. >> that fire burned almost three hours. pse&g, power officials, had to wait essentially for it to burn out. also earlier tonight, newark mayor cory booker talked with msnbc's rachel maddow about evacuation s aheaddeadly storm. >> we tried to convince an elderly woman to leave, she was in a wheelchair. she refused to go. the neighbor who was going to go looked at the woman, a much younger african-american female
angles. we have jim cantor e, he's hole up at the ritz bar down at battery park. we're journalists. >> mike seidel in hell's kitchen. >> exactly. >> let's get right to the weather. the beginning of sandy's effects are arriving up and down the mid-atlantic. winds are expected to reach 90 miles an hour, and already those living near the water have been forced evacuate. today it's expected to hook west and take aim at the northeast coast, leaving tens of millions of people just hours now to prepare. the entire new york city transit system is shut down. schools are closed along with those in baltimore, boston and washington, d.c. meteorologist bill karins is here with the very latest on the hurricane. bill. >> good morning to you, mika. and this storm is on schedule. nothing has changed. if anything, it's a little stronger than what we thought it would be at this point. and it's going to be moving on shore within the next 12 to 18 hours. this will be a 24-hour period for areas from the northern mid-atlantic, washington, d.c., all the way through boston that a lot of us will never forge
fundamentally is speech. i asked jim bob does our democracy work better? he believes that it does. what you have to ask yourself though is does it matter where the money is coming from? somebody has $10 million to give but only gets one vote, is that the same as somebody who can give $100 and have one vote? there seems to be a distortion. >> kai, a fascinating story indeed. appreciate your time. thank you so much. >> all right, take it easy. >> sarah palin refusing to back off after comments about the president, some comments she made about the president were met with anger. >>. >> up next, katy perry trying a novel way to get out the vote. okay, that looks great. were you profitable last month? how much money is in your checking account? have the browns paid you for their addition yet? your finances are scattered all over the place. mm-hmm. what are your monthly expenses? you keep your receipts in plastic baggies? seriously? [ announcer ] get it done and get it off your mind... with quickbooks. organize your small business finances... all in one place. quickbooks pulls in information from other
find it. let's deal with the system the way it is. and that's why jim and i have a difference of opinion on this idea. >> you know, j.d., i think the republican response, the conservative response to the affordable care act is symptomatic of something broader. to me it has badly damaged the credibility of the conservative movement over the past few years. that is if the obama presidency, i would say it's moderate. it's been incremental. you look at the health care plan, as you say, which has bee insurance, the rescue of wall street, saved wall street as we know it. the stimulus, national security policies that were held over from bush. i could go on and on. the point is this, republicans confronted with an administration that showed time and again they did want to work with them and incorporate some conservative ideas. republicans instead responded by simply saying this is socialism, massive government, a threat to freedom. has the conservative movement destroyed its credibility by responding so hysterically to what has really been a moderate president? >> well, you know, i th
